Patience may be a virtue, but few things are more frustrating than being forced to wait for something you need right away. One of the great things about Office 365 is that youre always up to date. You dont have to wait for new features and capabilities. You get them automatically, as soon as theyre available.
One area where we know customers dont want to wait is with the security and privacy features of our products. Microsoft recently became the first major cloud provider to adopt ISO/IEC 27018, the worlds first international standard for protecting the privacy of personal data stored in the cloud. We also achieved the highest possible rating for our compliance with HITRUST, a standard that is particularly important to organizations that create, access, store or exchange personal health and financial information. Finally, we recently announced a number of upcoming security improvements for Office 365, from cross-platform support for Information Rights Management (IRM) in Office applications to enhanced Office 365 Message Encryption.
Outside of security features we made some other announcements this last week, including native cloud storage integration in the iPad and iPhone Office apps to make it easier to access, edit and share files from within the Office apps. We also announced that we are making it possible for cloud services to integrate Office Online into their applications with our new Cloud Storage Partner Program, so with any web browser you will now be able to open, view and edit documents stored in services like Box, Citrix and Salesforce.

Weve all been there, you search for an email or calendar invite in Outlook only to find that it isnt there anymore. Until now deleted items were moved into the Deleted Items folder, then they would disappear after being in that folder for 30 days. With this update, the length of time items remain in the Deleted Items folder is extended to indefinitely or according to the duration set by your administrator. So that email or calendar invite you were looking for is still there if you search for it later”even if you accidentally deleted it.
If you are an Office 365 administrator, this means well be updating the Default MRM Policy for everyone using Exchange Online over the next month. As an administrator, you also have control over this behavior. If you want to keep the 30-day policy or set a custom retention period, that can be done as well and you dont even need to wait for the change. Also, if you have already created a custom MRM policy, (as long as it has a name other than œDefault MRM Policy), you dont need to do anything and the change will not impact you.
You can either edit the name of the Default MRM Policy or create a new policy to opt out of this change. To change the policy name in Office 365 navigate to Office 365 Admin > Exchange admin center > compliance management > retention policies. Next, select Default MRM Policy, click the edit icon and then change the name of the policy.
Exchange admin center for compliance management and retention policies.
Editing experience for retention policies.
Now your policy will not be overwritten and will maintain the settings youve specified.
Q. Will this be only for new users or will this policy change for all my users who are already in Office 365?
A. This change will affect all existing and new users in your Office 365 tenant who have been assigned the Default MRM Policy.
Q. What if I customized the Default MRM Policy with other settings and properties, but did not rename it?
A. Modifying the properties in the Default MRM Policy alone will not exclude it from being overwritten by this change. If you have customized your Default MRM Policy and kept the original name, the change will still apply.
Q. Does this policy apply to the Recoverable Items folder?
A. No the change does not apply to the Recoverable Items folder. It is only for the visible Deleted Items folder.
Q. If I already have a custom retention policy, will it also be changed to this new default?
A. No, custom policies that you have created will not be modified. For example, if the admin has added extra tags, modified the retention period, modified retention enabled of an existing tag etc. the new behavior will not be enforced.
Q. Does this change affect œMove to Archive actions on the Deleted Items folder?
A. No, this change will not affect any explicit tags set by the users on items in the Deleted Items folder.
Q. If there is a œMove to Archive action on the Deleted Items folder will that be affected?
A. No, the change will not affect any œMove to Archive actions on the Deleted Items folder.
Q. Will this change apply both to the primary and personal archive mailbox Deleted Items folders?
A. Yes, the change will apply for the Deleted Items folder in both the primary and archive mailbox.
Q. Will this change affect a Litigation Hold or In-Place Hold?
A. No, this will not an affect Ligation Hold or In-Place Hold.
Q. How is Microsoft implementing this change?
A. We are instructing the system to ignore the 30 day delete tag on the Deleted Items folder if the retention policy’s name is “Default MRM Policy.” This is why changing the policy name will ensure that the tag continues to work. We are not removing or disabling the tag.

When global manufacturer Henkel found itself at a crossroads, dealing with aging IT infrastructure and disparate collaboration and productivity tools, the nearly 140-year-old company decided to leap to the cloud with Office 365.
Dial soap, Purex hand sanitizer, Persil laundry detergent, Loctite adhesive, Schwarzkopf haircare”Henkel has a broad stable of products and technologies used by consumers and industries in 75 countries. The worlds first glue stick? That was Henkel, too. Much of what the company creates plays a supporting role in peoples lives and businesses”behind-the-scenes, sometimes even virtually invisible, but always exceptional.
œHenkel always strives to be best-in-class. To achieve that goal we need to be proactive in adopting technology to deliver a modern workplace. The world is connected as never before, and we need to connect our people, our partners, and our customers to be successful, said Joachim Jaeckle, Henkels senior corporate vice president of IT.
The companys leadership team, headquartered in DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany, started to worry about its aging IT infrastructure and productivity tools. Henkels 47,000 employees lacked a cohesive, fast-moving way to communicate, collaborate and work on-the-go.
œTo simplify the environment we decided to take a huge leap forward and invest in the cloud rather than upgrading existing systems, Jaeckle said.
œWhen you are delivering new technology like this, you have to go for it, said Markus Petrak, Henkels corporate director of Integrated Business Solutions. œWe had to move fast and communicate well to make the change as easy as possible.
Office 365 has since ignited the productivity and connectivity of all of its departments, from accounting to marketing and packaging to research and development.
œA simplified, mobile way of working is a”its a must-have. We have employees who are working outside, who are working with our customers, Petrak said. They want to use different channels to connect. They want to be able to see who they are talking to and they want to work from anywhere. These are the capabilities we need to deliver long-term success, added Jaeckle.
A video series premiering today explores the 140-year-old companys transformation to a thoroughly modern, connected workplace.
